The women who made me - the Chippenham story

How wonderful to have Lucy Whitfield - September's speaker - comment so generously about her evening with Pewsham Belles last Thursday. She said on Facebook: "Lovely evening talking all things women's history with Pewsham Belles WI - telling stories of laundries, cloth mills, lunatics, multiple births and colourful criminals. And they had really taken the #tellmeaboutyourgranny project by the horns. Thank you so much ladies."

Card making for the Sunshine Fund

September Book Club: All Together Now

We had a great evening with the Book Club. Lots of lovely debate, some of it even about the book! We all agreed it was a nice, easy read and that any similarity with Chippenham or choirs to which we belong is pure coincidence. We scored All Together Now 7 out of 10, with pretty consistent scores this time. Our next read is How Hard Can It Be by Allison Pearson and we'll meet on October 9th.
